Who knows maybe they figure out how to make a lumed date window? Nodus did it alreadyYup, the issue isn't "lume existing at 3." Seiko's dials run small, but there's still space to put it there. The Samurai has had it forever, and it looks perfectly fine. The issue is that by going to steel rehauts in place of their old indexed chapter rings in many of the newer models, they've decided to put the minute track at the edge of the dial, and move the markers inboard. That look works perfectly well when there's no 3 o'clock pip required, as on the initial SPB14x models. With the new requirement though, regardless of who's responsible for it, it doesn't really work.
It especially doesn't work on the latest MM300s, which have even smaller dials than the standard 28.5mm used in the 4R and 6R based divers. I really cringe though at what the next SLA range 62MAS reissue is going to look like, assuming they make more of them. The 043 just got in under the old spec, but newer ones wouldn't be able to if they want to keep the "Diver's" tag on the dial. There's really no way to fix that without ruining the design.
